Fabric Shopping

Not a lot of sewing happened this week, unless I count shopping and cutting fabric.

First up, I found fabric I like for the 2 baby Splash quilts. Blue Marble for background, Moda Grunge Decadent for binding, and Gray Marble for whale or anchor.

And finally! The fabric I ordered to use as binding for the Curve It Up quilt arrived!

And fabric cutting -

Fabric cut and labeled by row for the Boston Commons version of Trip Around the World pattern. And backing purchased! I’ve prepped this for a friend who wants to make a quilt similar to one her grandmother made & gave to her. Grandmother’s quilt has been well loved, beyond repair.

Boston Commons is set aside, ready for some time in the future when my friend and I can get meet to start piecing. I’m going back to Curve It Up and get that binding on this week. Then on to piecing two Splash quilts.

Last To-Do List:

  1. Baby Girl quilt – hand stitch label in place. ✔️
  2. Work on Splash quilts, after shopping for background fabrics.  ✔️

This Week’s To-Do List:

  1. Bind Curve It Up quilt
  2. Continue piecing Splash quilts

    Hi Sharon! Nice job on picking on the fabrics for two Splash baby quilts. Yippee for getting your binding fabric, too. That will be a fairly easy finish for the month! Woohoo to two checkmarks! Thanks for linking up this week. ~smile~ Roseanne

    The top fabrics are super together, they will be a pair of lovely baby quilts. The trip round the world, what a tribute to a previous generation, it is heart-warming to know we think of grandmothers as we plan a new project.
